Crystal Bowersox: Every now and again in an industry that is saturated with over hyped – here today and gone tomorrow talent- an artist comes along who truly embodies a unique sound and vision. Crystal Bowersox is that artist.

The small town Ohio born singer/songwriter and guitarist whose early performances began in coffeehouses and later Chicago’s underground subway circuit, was catapulted to stardom when she captured the hearts of millions as a finalist on Season 9 of American Idol. Earning a slot as the season’s runner up, Crystal Bowersox’s gentle strength, quiet wisdom, immense emotional depth and angelic voice made a connection with the show’s viewers and indeed her debut album outsold that year’s Idol winner. With a confidence and rich soulfulness well beyond her years, Crystal made a lasting impression.

In March 2013, Shanachie Entertainment will release Crystal Bowersox’s label debut. Shanachie Entertainment General Manager, Randall Grass, says, “On American Idol, Crystal Bowersox stood out as a real singer with a big voice who made an emotional connection with the audience, similar to the way Adele does. Yet we feel the true depth of her talent as a singer and songwriter has not yet been fully exposed and we look forward to achieving that with her new album. We are very excited to be working with her.” Bowersox adds “Shanachie is a good fit for me and my music. I am happy to join the label's growing list of critically acclaimed and well-respected recording artists.  I am really looking forward to working on this new project.”

Inspired by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, EmmyLou Harris and Michael Franti to Aretha Franklin, Jewel and Janis Joplin, Crystal Bowersox is a consummate artist with a broad musical palette to draw from. Her rich amalgam of emotive folk-rock-country and soul makes her easily one of the most dynamic artists of her generation. Not yet thirty, she has emerged as a truly gifted songwriter who is able to easily tap into the raw emotion of any song.

While on American Idol in 2010, Bowersox had the opportunity to perform alongside the likes of Joe Cocker, Harry Connick Jr., and Alanis Morrissette. The experience of Idol was full if lessons for the young artist, wife and mother.  A grounded person with a great sense of humor the singer shares, “I've learned that you're not allowed to wear the same outfit twice on television and I've also learned not to burp and curse so loudly in public. But best of all, I've learned that forgiveness starts with forgiving and accepting yourself as you are, it makes it easier to accept others as they are. I've learned that as you grow older, time becomes more precious than it's ever been, so don't sweat the small stuff.”

Now, that kind of intensity and that kind of spirit deserves to be heard at Seven Steps Up. Don't miss this incredible artist in our intimate venue. 

Suzie Brown & Scot Sax: Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, it’s not that unique of a creative impulse. But when you’re also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and selfless on the job, the catharsis is even more essential. “Music is my place to be honest,” says Brown. “I can say how I'm really feeling. I like not having to be so strong." With her gift for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics, it’s hard to imagine it’s been only six years since she penned her first song. In that time, she’s been nominated for several Independent Music Awards, named a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong contest, a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, among other accolades, and had her music featured at Starbucks, The Gap and Anthropologie. Scot Sax knows his way around a song. He has been writing them for years, whether it was with his own bands Wanderlust and Feel, or as a purveyor of hits for singers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. It was Sax, in fact, who co-wrote the country duo’s Grammy-winning smash “Like We Never Loved At All.” His catchy “I Am the Summertime,” penned while with the band Bachelor Number One, was featured in the blockbuster “American Pie.” And he’s netted countless TV credits, with song placements in shows like “Ghost Whisperer,” “NCIS,” “CSI: NY” and “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” Brown and Sax met by chance at a mutual friend’s wedding. 11 months later they were married. It didn’t take long to realize that their chemistry was infectious both on and off the stage, and they have been slowly but surely combining their musical worlds. Sax co-produced Brown’s latest album ‘Almost There’ with Oliver Wood (Wood Brothers). Brown’s folk/Americana roots influenced Sax to explore a more raw, stripped down sound on his latest release “I’m in A Mood.” The couple relocated to Nashville in the winter of 2014, and have spent much of this year co-writing with some of Nashville’s finest writers. This November, they are embarking on their first tour as a duo.
